About this book
The satirical mind behind the Ig Nobel Prizes offers an addictive, wryly funny exposé of the oddest, most imaginative and just plain improbable research from around the globe. He looks into why books on ethics are more likely to get stolen, the best way to slice a ham sandwich (mathematically), and what time of month generates higher tips for Vegas lap dancers. Abrahams' tour through unlikely investigations of animals, plants, and minerals (including humans) will make the reader laugh, and then think about the world in a new way.
From the satirical mind behind the Ig Nobel Prizes comes a laugh-out-loud compendium of outlandish and thought-provoking science
